My Tormund Costume

The biggest, heaviest, greatest costume I have crafted so far!

This costume is now available in my Etsy shop: The Baytree Spectacle (update: on request, please leave a comment in my About page or here if you want to buy it)! For this one I am sadly not going to write a tutorial, because the making of cost me one (awesome) year. But it turned out so lovely, so robust and so awesome: that I have to share it with you! This is my homage to the Tormund costume. Questions of course are always appreciated and always answered <3. The first few pictures will show you the end result, and after that are some process pictures! Enjoy this new wildling costume.

There is an opportunity to get this coat, after Halloween – I know ;)-, so please go over to my Etsy shop and there you can purchase this genuine leather and handfelted wool, partially handsewn and totally awesome item for yourself.

Read the product description here:

The Tormund Giantsbane inspired coat is now entirely ready to order now!

This bold costume / coat is one of my biggest projects. It was made within a year customly for a customer. Sadly, it was returned because it was too small for the customer. I checked the coat and it is still in the condition it was send in. The customer let me know that they absolutely love the costume. Because of the return, another person will get a chance to order this coat since I put so much effort and love into it. Before you order it, I would love to first get a message so that I know who I am sending it to and why you want to buy it :).

The costume is in a male EU size L but probably also wearable as a male EU size M. For women it will be about an EU size L/XL.

Materials
The costume is made from genuine strong, soft nubuck-like leather in a blue greyish and black colour. The wool is hand-felted and hand sewn. The wool comes from Gotland, Drents, Wensleydale and the Finnish country sheep. Most of the costume is handsewn.

What you will receive
In the package that contains the costume you will receive a manual on how to use and take care of it and a personal note. You will also receive the attachable front piece as stated in the pictures.

Shipping
Does it not ship to your country? Contact me via message and I’ll add your country. I only ship this item to within the European Union.

Return
Are you not happy with your purchase? You can send the costume back to me within 14 days and when you apply for a return you have 14 days to send it back me. The return costs are for yourself. For problems you can of course always contact me.

Wear
You can wear this as an actual coat (which is what it was made for) but it is preferred to wear it for Cosplay, Halloween or other occassions.

Website
I made this costume along with other costumes that can be seen on my website BaytreeCostumes .com I have made multiple costumes from Game of Thrones and some from Outlander. I make costumes for a hobby and this is an order I made for a customer, with all the love and great care.

How to make Ygritte’s costume from Game of Thrones

Perhaps too late for Halloween this year, but certainly not less inspirational! Let’s celebrate creativity with this new tutorial. This time we’ll discover the costuming world of Game of Thrones.

After a long period of trying to keep this exciting project silent (just to give myself a little less stress), I can now finally come with all the details. And they are plenty!

If you have been following my blog, you know that I am always inspired by a variation of TV series and films. From period drama to fantasy, the cinematic scenery and images always speak to my imagination and from there to creativity. I have been working very hard on two amazing pieces from the enormous TV series Game of Thrones. I wanted to make a twin piece, and what immediately came to mind: Ygritte and Jon! (Pre season 6: Have you seen this picture already?). Click here to see my article on how to make Jon Snow’s fur, ecologically! And click here to see my Youtube video on this costume!

I based my design on this version from the show

I like that guy on the right haha!

The process was long and hard, as always, but again very insightful and the new fabrics and techniques were so exciting. I always enjoy learning something new (said the proud autodidact).

Ygritte 2

This is the result. If you have seen my last (and first) project inspired by the TV series from Outlander, you know how much I can meddle with one particular project. The most irritating thing always being the pattern (argh). Continue reading
